How many on or off topic votes does a question need to count against questions needed now?

I currently have 60 followers on my proposal and it says I need 5 on-topic and 5 off-topic questions. I have 31 submitted questions - 9 have more than 5 "on-topic" votes and 5 have more than 5 "off-topic votes. How many votes do I need to have for a single question to be on-topic and off-topic?

Also, is there a way this information could get added to the Area 51 FAQ? It seems like it should be in there, along with all of the guidelines for moving between stages.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Hm. That did not turn up in my searches (or I missed it because the title is kind of awkward), but it does appear to answer my question. Thanks. – Thomas Owens Jul 19 '10 at 22:50

As described here, To be marked on-topic you need:

  • At least 20 on-topic votes
  • At least 4 times as many on-topic as off-topic votes

It's the reverse for off-topic.
